    Any news on the resolution front? I fully expect for nothing to happen over the holidays, but a quick update would be very much appreciated.

    Nothing will happen for a long while. It's been suggested to return cards where we got them from. Not even ETA on horizon as far the fix goes so I presume there might not be fix and this could be just to prolong things.

    It's all over reedit, overclock.net and internet that 90% line up of Asus Strix and TUF have issues with fan/shroud vibration I think Asus might be hurting themselves this time around and even thou they might not care...Well.. It will reflect on their further support rep.

    I fixed my rattling at 62-66% speed issue completely. Always happened when I was running a certain compute workload and could recreate the issue repeatably.

    Using sag supports, doing vertical case or mount, or applying pressure elsewhere partially fixed it but it arose again when the card was loaded differently.


    Now it's gone everywhere.

    I Cut three 2x2cm pieces of paper towel.

    Then folded 3 times each to make small rectangles.

    Using tweezers poking through the blades and without disassembling the card, I shoved them firmly under these plastic pieces that hold the fans, once for each of the three fans until I saw the plastic part lift a little.

    It is important that whatever you put in there is fairly tight to put tension/load on the fan mount like a spring, and to prevent the shim from possibly falling out over time.

    That raised the fans away from the fin stack.

    I tested by tapping the middle of the fan with my finger. Before it would make a clicking sound like something was loose. Now it makes a muffled solid "thunk".

    Shimming the middle fan stopped nearly all of the high pitched rattle and changed the pitch to a barely audible duller one.

    Shimming all three fans stopped all rattle in all load scenarios. Now I only hear regular fan and air noise.

    tfw a piece of paper towel fixes a $850 USD flagship graphics card. YMMV.

    After some light testing, I can confirm that your trick does indeed work! I went with a little more "elegant" solution and cut up little squares from a popsicle stick, carefully jammed them in the same spot you did for the three fans and now the rattling is gone! Now I only hear the loud coil whine which is so much better than that sound from before. Hopefully this does the trick for good.

    Guys be careful if you try this, it's not easy to pry the little plastic bracket to have enough clearance to put a little shim under there, you might slip and damage the fan blades or you might lose your shim in the fins from the heatsink.

    This seems to have worked for me as well. I used a few pieces of a coaster and slipped it under there. In my case, it went in really easy, as the space between the fins and the fanmount was rather large. I havent tested it extensively, but a quick stress test and manual fan ramp from 0 to 100 left me without any noise. Seems to work.

    Whoa there, popsicle stick?! Look at Mr Fancypants over here with the cutting edge high tech materials. Glad it worked, friend.

    This seems to have worked for me as well. Also, strangely, it seems to have significantly improved cooling performance. Playing CP2077 with RT on, I now rarely exceed 60° with fans at 60%. This was significantly worse before, altough I can't really explain why it should have any effect whatsoever.

    Rattling seems gone for good though.

    Yeah, my dad works for NASA so we have them laying around. Super useful!

    I'm so happy that this problem was easy to solve, I played a bunch since yesterday and it's completely gone. I finally got rid of my 1080ti since I won't have to send this one back.

    Happy holidays to you all!

    I moved my whole PC build to a new case this weekend. From a P400a to a Lian Li o11 dynamic XL. The oll dynamic XL has a neat gpu support system that is installed with offsets through the mobo mounting screws, so its completely hidden. Even with this new set up I have still not had any vibration issues on my card purchased on December 22. Ive tried to make it vibrate by moving the shrould around, pushing it, flixing it, etc with fans running. I get nothing. Sucks for you guys who have this issue. I would recommend using rubber though over paper towel. Still curious to see what the root cause of this, because im curious why so many have the issue but I dont.
